The Torpedo VB-101 is made to be used with a guitar/bass amp. Plug it in place of your regular cabinet and enjoy all the great characteristics of your audio amplification chain (from the guitar to the amp, including effects pedals) silently!
The Torpedo VB-101 can replace the whole guitar sound recording process with a powerful simulation of the cabinet, microphone, mic preamp and studio acoustics. Choose your speaker among the thirty available, your microphone among the 8 most used microphones in the studio and sculpt your sound with the included effects section (EQ, Exciter, Compressor).
The sound recording is done silently and with perfect control of all the critical parameters.
In The Studio
In home / project studio, where the cabins are not necessarily suitable for miking guitar (and the resulting high volume), it allows the engineer to perform a sound recording silently without any compromise on the sound.
For studios already equipped for miking guitar (cabins, microphones), it offers an alternative to the regular sound recording process and can be used together to provide a wider range of possibilities in the mix.
Another common use is in the studio when you need to record a whole band in live conditions. The Torpedo VB-101 then allows you to completely isolate the sound from the bass guitar and other instruments without necessarily having a dedicated cabin.
On stage, the Torpedo VB-101 will be a big asset for the comfort of the musicians and the public.
Find your own sound every night, gig after gig, do not be dependent on bad microphones or the one not necessarily very well placed, etc.
The sound recording is not 'polluted' by other instruments, making the FOH and personal monitor mixes much easier to do and more comfortable for the musicians.
In the studio, it can be very interesting to record a raw track that you can later reprocess (called 'remiking' or 'reamping') at the mixing stage thanks to the Torpedo VB-101. This allows you to concentrate on the music when recording, not on the sound
Of course, you can record both processed and unprocessed signals to your DAW at the same time.
The use of computer stations has become a must these days, that's why Torpedo have developed an application to control the VB-101 remotely from your Mac/PC via the USB connector on the rear panel.
With its clear and intuitive interface, the Torpedo Remote software will give you access to all the VB-101 parameters, loading and saving presets, loading new IR's and updating your VB-101.
